all my hard work has paid off! i got the gears installed and i just decided to run my old rims on the old spacers... (one spacer is just missing a stud) oh well. but i went wheeling all weekend and drive about 600 miles there and back.. everything worked out great. heres some pics!
i didnt get too many, my buddy has all the good ones. but all in all it was a great trip, fun camping and we had a great time at that demo derby! if anyone is near rutland vermont around july 4th, you should def go check it out.

ive come to realize the spacer failure was probably my fault. but since it did break i am looking for new wheels at the moment. checking craigslist, ebay, and all deals i can find.. but first i need to regear my rear end ... and i have to do all this before fourth of july weekend with little to no budget.. so i need a miracle.
i just got off the phone with some guy in portland who will trade 4 rims for my welder. and i raised enough money for a master install kit for my gears.. the only problem is if i order the master install kit online.. thats 3-5 bussiness days i will have to wait.. and i dont have that much time...then i need to get the tires on the other rims ... so ill be a busy man

so matt (barrows) stopped by in his cool red TJ and dropped off the 4.10 gears for my 8.8..
these gears are huge, make the D35 inners look like a toy. pics later.. busy with house stuff at the moment

Looking so good. I troll through the Build section daily and I never spoted this Build . Looks great. Good find on the HP30.
I did have a RH drive hatch. (I know yours was a mac deal)
I used as a truck also.
